Hi,

I have to write a SQL and PL/SQL guide for our developpers. Some are good but most of them can use help.

I'm not a big fan of hints except for insert append, I used them only if I really need to.

In last october I went to a 3 days DB2 UDB course, unless I miss something there are no hint with DB2 UDB.
So I was thinking that when the Oracle optimiser would be more mature maybe hints would go away.

I just want to know what is Oracle direction with hints.

TIA Stephane

This is facinating, where does this come from? This is the second time in a week that I've heard this statement being made by someone. Hints will never go away IMHO, and Oracle continues to add more and more of them. I was told by someone at a client site that they were told by an Oracle instructor that they should not use hints in 9i....

Hi,

Does Oracle have an official position on hints ? Will they go away as the optimiser is becoming bettre or they are there to stay ?
